This package provides tools for performing level-set simulations on complex terrain given a prescribed wind-field. Functions are also provided for generating two and three dimensional wind-fields using divergence-free interpolation. A custom interpolation scheme using radial basis functions is also provided for generating terrain surfaces from discrete data. The package also contains a function that performs time integration and evolution of an implicit level-set function by solving a nonlinear transport problem. A number of utility functions are also available to assist in prerforming various plotting or extracting data.
